the north koreans want to develop technology for a long-range missile, and they still expect the launch will go ahead. south korean government officials told nhk that they confirmed the three-stage rocket was being taken down, and they said it was moved to a nearby facility. on monday, officials in pyongyang extended the launch window by one week to december 29th. they said they were having technical problems with the first-stage control module. government officials in seoul say the defect may not be limited to the first stage, and it may take some time before launch is possible. but they remain on alert. they say they believe the north koreans still want to launch the missile before the end of the month. >>> south korean media have reported on claims that iranian missile experts are helping with the launch. officials in iran say the claims are baseless. >> translator: they're using propaganda to scare people and harm our relations with north korea and other countries. >> the spokesperson acknowledged the two countries cooperated militarily in the 1980s during the iran/iraq war but he s
this was to test out the long-range missile technology, which is banned by the united nations. the blue house also saying it is a challenge and threat to the peace of northeast asia and the peace of the world. they are calling on north korea to spend this money on its people rather than on the rocket launch itself. but for north korea, this was incredibly important. they wanted this rocket launch to happen before the end of the year. 2012 is an important year for north korea. they want to commemorate the birth of kim jong-un and the death of kim jong-il. as far as they are concerned they say it was a success but we have to wait for confirmation. >> we had less than success for them in april when their similar launch actually broke apart. many said that was rather embarrassing for the administration in north korea. but this is pretty soon after that to have a successful launch. is there some concern there is another country out there helping north korea to get this technology to work? >> certainly there is that concern and there have been many reports and plenty of speculation about who might be he
korea is on its way to developing technology to launch a rocket at the united states's west coast and hawaii. officials tell cnn that the working assumption is that the north koreans got outside help from others, including iran. so today's launch is raising some huge concerns. let's go to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. i assume they are pretty surprised and alarmed by the successful launch over at the pentagon? >> look, wolf, because of everything you just mentioned, indeed, the u.s. military, the intelligence committee have been watching north korea for days now 24/7 because they did expect to launch and they announced it. but they were having technical problems so a lot thought it wouldn't happen until next week. when it happened last week, there was a surprise. the north korean anchor's excitement was clear. >> announcing the launch of a long-range rocket that put a north korean satellite to orbit around the earth. they clearly achieved one goal raising everyone's anxiety level. >> this is a step towards the ability to build a long-range missile that could strike par

jump in technology for them. >> so does this, chris, tell us much about how close north korea is from being able to launch long-range missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads? >> great question. the official i spoke with says he still believes that is some years away because they haven't mastered all the other things they would need to do that. in other words, marrying their nuclear program with the missile, making a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on the end of a missile, solving the heat shield problems so the missile doesn't burn up when it reenters the earth's atmosphere, and accuracy. being able to hit exactly what you're aiming at. the big worry, though, is proliferation. a u.s. official says what are the working assumptions are going on is that iran may have helped north korea with this launch. i spoke with a former senior adviser here at the department of defense who says iran has been kicking around for quite some time. >> there are rumors and stories that iran has placed some of its people in gung yang and that they're helping out at the test site. there was this
's the proud result of the workers' party's policy on science and technology. >> reporter: the last time they trade this back in april north korea's multistage rocket disintegrated a few minutes after takeoff. but this time it seems they got it right. the only pictures we've got come from the control room's big screen t.v. but we can see the rocket leave the launch pad and climb into the upper atmosphere. we're told they put a satellite, the shining star 3, into orbit. this country may not be able to feed its own people but its engineers can fire things into space. "it's made with our own technology and our own strength" says the director of the command center. the country's boyish looking supreme leader, kim jong-un, has disregard it had will of the international community and enhanced his own credentials with the military at home. some hope he'd take a more reformist approach one year after the death of his father, kim jong-il, but those hopes have been dashed, it seems. in south korea, protesters took to the streets burning flags and portraits. and the international community added it

that you would think of that has military connotations. but the same technology that you use to put a satellite into orbit is really the same kind of technology that you would use to build a long range nuclear missile. >> and the timing appears to have been some kind of surprise to u.s. officials. how worried is the pentagon right now after this launch? >> well, one official that i spoke with said it is a step up in north korea's cape ability. and this has been condemned all around from south korea and japan all the way up to the white house. but there are several still big stages to go through before the u.s. has to be seriously worried about north korea's ability to extend its range to the united states. they've got to work on heat sensors. because getting something up is one thing. but to get the weapon for re-enter the at loss fear and not burn up, that's quite another. they also have to work on accuracy issues. just shooting something out, again, one thing. having it hit your intended target, something much more difficult. >> still as you said, a big deal. we'll be talking to y
the philippines. a satellite is light weight compared to a one ton nuclear war head, but a lot of technology used to put a satellite in orbit is the same technology you can use to develop long range ballistic missiles. >> because that failed launch in april, what, it stayed in the air less than a minute or so, are they basically trying to do the same thing now that they failed to do then? >> there's a lot of speculation about that and a lot of experts think that this is a very quick turn around. that launch lasted, went so quickly, there was very little chance to learn much of anything from it. there's a possibility there was one failed part that the north koreans identified. some speculate that they timed their launches in accordance with certain events. in this case, we're coming up on the one year anniversary of the death of kim john-il, so that could be a motivator for this. but a lot of experts say because of the technology involved and the difficulty in getting the launches to succeed, trying to time them to specific historical events is usually not a good way to go about things, wolf. >> c
